2. Second place winner - four tickets which means the winner can take a pal to both days free. Value - $180 USD.
3. Third place winner - no tickets but you get honourable mention with is both honourable and a mention.
Writing my beer poem:OK, make it fifty and/or three stanzas of haiku.
Like the first returning birds
Hope and joy fill me.
But it is the keg,
Not the nest. Free ticks, free brew.
Swallows, not swallows.
Write one hundred words.
One hundred words? Tears flow down;
Beer leaks, the bung failed.
